Hey, the guy who owns Urban Outfitters is pro life

Yep, just found out today. The billionaire Richard Hayne, of UO-hipster-fashion fame, is an ultra-Republican, anti-gay and a pro lifer. Some find it reason to boycott UO, since funds go in part toward pro life campaigns. Others simply respond, “meh”. What would you do? Would you forego the multi-coloured skinnies, or rather lavish in “choosing life”?

  1. That’s ridiculously ironic, even for UO standards. This is a clothing brand that’s been selling T-shirts with anti-republican and anti-Bush slogans for years (e.g. RIP GOP, etc). I am impressed.

  2. This will impact my shopping for sure. I hope big business learns that they need to stay totally neutral in politics since they are operating in a country that’s evenly divided politically. I will miss Anthropoligie, but like Target who recently decided to let me know where they stand in politics, I now will find other, more politically neutral places to shop. 🙂 Sarah Jane
